A Good Introduction to Content Curation by Donna Papacosta [Video]


Robin Good: If you are new to it, here is a good 30-minute video introduction to content curation by Donna Papacosta. Why to do it, how to do it, what tools you can use to do it. All explained in clear, simple language. 

 

She says: "...the objective is not to find as much information as possible and to dump it on people... it is to find the best, most relevant content and to be discerning.

People will trust you if you are discerning."

 

Useful for beginners. 8/10

10 Priceless & Powerful Content Curation Tools

10 Priceless & Powerful Content Curation Tools | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Content curation is the process of discovering, collating, and presenting content relevant to a particular topic.The function of content curation and content creation is similar since both aim at using content to engage target audiences on social media.

Content creation allows you to create and share original articles or information with your social media followers; curation refers to gathering content on a specific topic, which has already been published by others.

Content creation lets you share exclusive and original content with your followers which can include promotional and non-promotional content.

A successful social media marketing strategy includes the use of original content, curated content, and general statements. According to TA McCann's 5-3-2 rule, for every 10 posts that you share on social media, 5 of them should be curated from external sources, 3 posts should be original (not necessarily promotional), and 2 posts should be general, non-work related, to help humanize your business....

6 concerns students have about MOOCs

6 concerns students have about MOOCs | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
“MOOCs have the potential to reach learners who otherwise may not have access to postsecondary education, but they have a long way to go in proving reliability of information and quality of content.That may sound like a researcher or wary administrator’s perspective, but these sentiments are strongly expressed by today’s college students.In a new qualitative data report, Communication Instructor Dr. Andrew Cole at Waukesha County Technical College and Dr. C. Erik Timmerman, associate professor at the Department of Communication at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, reveal the thoughts of one large university’s current college students toward MOOCs.”

Ultimately, just remember to concentrate on your priorities and not get worried about the things you can't do. There's a lot of available information and the secret is to pick what works for you and get others in to do the rest of the work for you!

How does knowledge grow? Sometimes it begins with one insight and grows into many branches; other times it grows as a complex and interconnected network. Infographics expert Manuel Lima explores the thousand-year history of mapping data -- from languages to dynasties -- using trees and networks of information. It's a fascinating history of visualizations, and a look into humanity's urge to map what we know.

What to do with a MOOC? | Higher Education Academy | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

In this post Leah Marks looks at the idea of using MOOC content in on-campus education and considers some of the potential benefits and pitfalls of doing so. Leah is University teacher in Medical Genetics at University of Glasgow and an Associate Fellow of the HEA (leah.marks@glasgow.ac.uk) Last year I ran a MOOC. When I say ran, I also mean envisioned, designed, planned, and directed (along with masses of help from some trusty colleagues). The process in itself was a fabulous experience for me as a relatively junior member of staff whose main experience thus far in my career has been as deputy on a variety of programmes and courses.
